Dan Gustin, who has overseen the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival for the last 18 years, was recently in New York to introduce the 2018 Gilmore Artist, Russian-German pianist Igor Levit. He talks to Cara Lieurance about the process of selecting the final candidate, and how Levit rose to the top.

The keyboard festival will be held this spring, from April 25-May 12. It's the last festival Gustin will program as executive director. He's remaining as director emeritus while the new director, Pierre Van Der Westhuizen, settles in to the role.
